Sunday, Sept 4: Sign Up for a New Approach to Ushering
Everyone is invited to bring 2+ people from your family, small group, or ministry team to the Narthex on Sept 4 and sign up for ONE Sunday to usher this Fall (Sept-Nov). A “veteran” usher will be present on your Sunday to support and organize your team, and more info and a video will be provided ahead of time.
The main ushering duties at SPLC are: 1) making sure any latecomers or guests have a worship folder and find a seat, 2) directing folks to the Lord’s Table. Come experience how easy and rewarding it is serve the Body in the Lord’s House!
CROP Walk 2022
Join us in our efforts to support this year’s St. Joseph County CROP Hunger Walk and help us fight hunger in our community and across the globe.
What is the CROP Hunger Walk?
CROP Hunger Walks are community fundraising events sponsored by Church World Service (CWS), a faith-based organization addressing hunger and food insecurity, lack of clean water, and other issues defining poverty in our community and across the globe. 25% of the funds we raise will go to local organizations in St. Joseph County, including The Christian Community Pantry, Broadway Christian Parish UMC Food Ministries, Sunnyside Presbyterian Church Food Pantry and United Religious Community Advocacy Center.
How can I get involved?
- Walk with us on Sunday, September 25, 2022 at 2:00 pm at Zion United Church of Christ in South Bend (near Howard Park). Registration starts at 1:15 pm. There are two walks – a short 1-mile walk or a long 4-mile walk.
- Donate on behalf of our walkers and SPLC. Our goal is to raise $500. Let’s make it happen!
- Online: To donate online, click here or go to our SPLC fundraising page and click on the orange ‘Donate’ button.
- Offline: Grab one of the donation folders by the slat wall and return it to Halrun Luppes no later than October 16, 2022.
- NOTE! If you are associated with SPY, please reference “St. Peter Youth” in the ‘Message’ field online or on your check as CWS will make a matching gift of $50 if our youth group raises at least $200.
- Pray for the CROP Walk and for our participation in it.
